Dominique Othenin-Girard directs Danielle Harris, Donald Pleasence and Don Shanks in this slasher sequel where Michael Myers… well… you already know…
Cheap and choppy. Unimpressive teens, unimpressive kills, weird mask redesign. Squanders all that was intriguing about the end of the fourth entry. There’s a car chase in a field that is a glimmer of hope. Clearly cut to ribbons by an over zealous producer. The hints at some greater conspiracy around The Shape have little impact but do confuse… Poor old Donald Pleasance is made to play heroic Dr Loomis like a batshit crazy child abuser.
